Serena wasn't fighting for women, Serena was fighting for Serena. She lost to another woman who deserved her win.
Turn the tables around and picture Osaka doing what she did yesterday.
A new kid who couldn't keep her calm
A shame to the competition, and so on.
But you know, its a kid from Japan, so let's excuse it all under activism.
Serena's claim that men get away with much more, lets look into that.
Are women at the US Open unfairly targeted by ump calls or held to a different standard?
There were 32 violations called
Women : 9 including all 3 called on Serena at the Final which means prior to that, men were accessed 23 violations and women 6.
If anything, since men were called almost 72% of the time
Well! The record fine in a Grand Slam was set at the Australian Open, a fine of 45,000 for "unprofessional conduct" by a "man".
To put that in perspective, all recent fine of men for same reason dwarfs the $17,000 Serena was fined.
But Serena's defenders refer to a McEnroe who was lauded for their outbursts while Serena was punished. Okay let's talk about that too.
Serena herself has displayed this kind of behaviour several times, even to women umpires who she berated and had docked her points.
Shamefully she refused to do that on Saturday and by so doing robbed a fellow woman of her glory moment by crying patriarchy.
Just goes to show all her claims are unfounded.
